I have recently found two jewellers who have really inspired me to make some jewellery of my own. Both were discovered while in St Ives in Cornwall.
The first one is Button Bijoux. This company makes beautiful necklaces, ring, brooches and bracelets from gorgeous buttons. The finished articles are also packaged in lovely little boxes that are almost as nice as the jewellery. The items would make lovely gifts for birthdays, Christmas or even a little treat for yourself. I think the prices are very reasonable and P&P is free! I’m planning to buy a little brooch for myself
The second jeweller that I found (and actually bought an item from) is Carrie Elspeth.
She uses lovely crystals and pearls in a simple but beautiful way. Her website is here and below is a photo of the earrings I bought. I thought these would be perfect for work.
So inspired was I, I went off to the bead shop and bought some beads. Here are my purchases (below). I plan to make two pairs of earrings for work. (I’m always struggling to find nice black earrings suitable for work). I will write a post about how I get on making them in the near future so look out for it.
